Questões interiores | Inside questions

Sabem aqueles dias assim…desesperantes?
Não que aconteça algo de mau ou que haja stress, dias que são perfeitamente normais até…mas que uma parte de ti, lá dentro, se vai questionando “aguento mais aproximadamente 50 anos disto?” e nem sabes responder…
50 x 365 = 18250… são muitos dias… são tantos dias…
You know those days that just feel like…despair?
Not that something bad happened or not that there’s some stress; days that are perfectly normal, even…but some part of you, inside, questions itself “can I take it, another 50 years or so of this?” and you don’t even know how to answer that…
50 x 365 = 18250… that is a lot of days… it’s so many days…

On the nature of being yourself


Genii of my existence, how I have searched for you how I have waited for you.
How I have longed for you!

All these years, this void, this notion of being incomplete and not knowing why! This missing you without knowing you, my outer soul, my inner self.

Looking deep within for what was out and reaching far away for what was close. What an utter fool was I! But, such as it is said, we grow. Live and learn. Know thyself… and love thyself. Find your completion in your virtues and, more importantly, in your flaws.

Worn out sentences, same old clichés, but still valid, still so true: know yourself, value yourself, fear not showing the real you to the world! Some may love you, some may hate you, some may not even notice you… and all the in-betweens. It has always been that way.

Still, no matter what, live to your fullest, being true to who you are.
